Hoodlums, Police clash over Okada ban in Ejigbo

There was tension at the Ajao Estate, Ejigbo area of Lagos last night as hoodlums and Okoda riders fiercely and violently resisted the policemen deployed to effect Okada ban around the Canoe axis of the community.

The clash which started at about 7.15pm, led to the destruction of a stationed armoured tank and a patrol vehicle belonging to the Lagos State Task Force on the Environment.

It was gathered that the Okoda riders mobilised their colleagues and thugs in the area against the policemen in a shootout. There were sporadic gun shots from Afolabi Bus-stop in the estate across the Canoe Bridge linking Ejigbo.
